Future Conditional Tickets

Old Vic TheatreLondon

Past imperfect. Present tense.

A bracingly topical and boisterously funny new play directed by Matthew Warchus and starring Rob Brydon, with a cast of 23 young performers.

Future Conditional tackles the conundrum of British schooling through a myriad of characters including parents, teachers, and Alia, a prodigiously clever young Pakistani refugee and the newest member of Britain’s Education Research Board. Alia has a radical solution for Britain’s schools that could restore our place in the world education league. But is the system ready to take lessons from a schoolgirl..?

Written by acclaimed playwright Tamsin Oglesby (The Mouse and His Child, Really Old Like 45), Future Conditional proves that when it comes to education, we’ve all got a lot to learn.
